XOD (pronounced "zode") is a visual programming language for Arduino and other microcontrollers. It looks a bit like Scratch (the visual programming language for kids) but XOD is especially made for microcontrollers and electronic components. There are XOD desktop IDEs for Mac, Windows, and Linux. In this Make Use Of video, you can see how to use XOD to control a servo with a proximity sensor. They are using this Elegoo Arduino kit ([amazon_link asins='B01D8KOZF4' template='PriceLink' store='boingboing' marketplace='US' link_id='6edaf630-ad28-43ef-84e1-38e346e3e0c3'] on Amazon), which has the servo, LCD display, and proximity sensor,
